the vehicle.

When unlocking/locking the vehicle, the key must be at a maximum distance

of approximately 1.5 m from the front door handle.

Information on locking

On vehicles fitted with automatic gearbox, the selector lever must be moved

into the position P before unlocking.
After locking the car, it is not possible to unlock within the next 2 seconds by

touching the door handle. This can be used to check whether the vehicle is

locked.

Protection against inadvertently locking the key in the vehicle

If one of the doors is closed after the vehicle has been locked and the key with

which the vehicle was locked remains in the passenger compartment, the vehi-

cle will be automatically unlocked. After automatically unlocking, the turn sig-

nal lights will flash four times. If no door is opened within 45 seconds, the vehi-

cle is automatically locked again.

If the boot lid is closed after locking the vehicle and the key with which the

vehicle was locked remains in the luggage compartment, the lid is automatical-

ly unlatched (partially opened). After automatically unlocking, the turn signal

lights will flash four times. The boot lid remains unlatched (partially opened);

the other doors remain locked.

CAUTION

Some types of gloves can affect the unlocking or locking device via the sen-

sors in the door handle.

Deactivating KESSY

LED headlights

The LED headlights (hereinafter referred to as just system) use the journey da-

ta to automatically ensure the best possible light cone in front of the vehicle.
The system operates automatically in the following modes: urban, remote, mo-

torway and bad weather.
A component of the system is the static side light. This light is used in some

light modes, e.g. for bend illumination during reversing.
The system works as long as the light switch is in position .

WARNING

If there is a system malfunction the headlights are automatically lowered to

the emergency position, which prevents a possible dazzling of oncoming

traffic. This reduces the cone of light in front of the vehicle. Seek help from

a specialist garage.
